Everyone’s got at least one | Opinions and anuses – Check out this from an octogenarian letter writer in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.

“The Democratic Party is, in my view, the initiator and perpetrator of white supremacy; Manifest Destiny; slavery; the Civil War; the Ku Klux Klan; Black codes; segregation; World War I; World War II; atomic bomb use; the Korean War; the Vietnam War; opposition to civil rights measures; making Black people victims rather than equals; enabling the bigotry of low expectations; widespread abortions among minorities; increased minority incarceration; open borders (which keep wages low and minority unemployment high); protecting underperforming schools; opposition to school choice; disrespect for law and order; and ignoring destruction within their cities.” Now that’s one long sentence!
